Will Isa (AS) allow women to go for Hajj alone?


i heard from somone when easa aliasalm came to earth at that time women allow to go haj alone is this right


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh


When ‘Isa (Alyhis Salaam) arrives once again, he will be part of the Ummah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). Therefore, the Shari’ah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) will still be established and implemented by ‘Isa (Alayhis Salaam). Although there will be peace on earth after dajjal and ya’juj and ma’juj are all destroyed, the injunctions of Shari’ah will still apply on the Ummah. Therefore, it will still be necessary for a woman to perform Hajj while being accompanied by her husband or a mehram male.

والمحرم في حق المرأة شرط، شابة كانت أو عجوزاً إذا كان بينها وبين مكة مسيرة ثلاثة أيام، واختلفوا في كون المحرم شرط الوجوب، أو شرط الأداء حسب اختلافهم في أمن الطريق، والمحرم: الزوج، ومن لا يجوز له مناكحتها على التأبيد برضاع أو صهريه؛ لأن المقصود من المحرم الحفظ؛ لأن النساء عرضة للفتنة، والزوج يحفظها، وكذا سائر محارمها يحفظونها
